For local history buffs Christmas is in March this year: The Southwold Museum and Historical Society have planned an incredible special event for the 19th March 2013, which will see historian John Holmes illuminate one of the most fascinating events in the region’s wartime history.
In 1942 Lowestoft experienced its blackest day in its Second World War history – the Waller’s Raid. German bombs killed 69 people and injured many more amid much devastation. This fascinating and informative event will help you to gain a deeper understanding of this dramatic event, and to learn all about what life was like under the threat of bombing.
Tickets are only available on the door, and cost just £3, so if you want to enjoy this wonderful historical opportunity, make sure you’re at the Methodist Church Hall in Southwold at 2:30pm on Tuesday 19th March. Arrive early so you don’t miss out!
